Summaries for CDH2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CDH2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a classical cadherin and member of the cadherin superfamily. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants, at least one of which encodes a preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate a calcium-dependent cell adhesion molecule and glycoprotein. This protein plays a role in the establishment of left-right asymmetry, development of the nervous system and the formation of cartilage and bone. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]

GeneCards Summary for CDH2 Gene

CDH2 (Cadherin 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDH2 include Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy and Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma. Among its related pathways are Natural Killer Cell Receptors: Human Target Cell – NK Cell Ligand-Receptor Interactions and Cell junction organization. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and protein phosphatase binding. An important paralog of this gene is CDH4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDH2 Gene

  • Cadherins are calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells; cadherins may thus contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types. Acts as a regulator of neural stem cells quiescence by mediating anchorage of neural stem cells to ependymocytes in the adult subependymal zone: upon cleavage by MMP24, CDH2-mediated anchorage is affected, leading to modulate neural stem cell quiescence. CDH2 may be involved in neuronal recognition mechanism. In hippocampal neurons, may regulate dendritic spine density (By similarity).

Post-translational modifications for CDH2 Gene

  • Cleaved by MMP24. Ectodomain cleavage leads to the generation of a soluble 90 kDa amino-terminal soluble fragment and a 45 kDa membrane-bound carboxy-terminal fragment 1 (CTF1), which is further cleaved by gamma-secretase into a 35 kDa. Cleavage in neural stem cells by MMP24 affects CDH2-mediated anchorage of neural stem cells to ependymocytes in the adult subependymal zone, leading to modulate neural stem cell quiescence (By similarity).
  • May be phosphorylated by OBSCN.
